The AI See You of Candlewhisper Archive is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by July S Kaiser with an even hand, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of prisons, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 10.617 billion Archivists enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Monaster. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Archivian economy, worth a remarkable 4,661 trillion slightly grubby dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Soda Sales, and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 439,102 slightly grubby dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,502,210 per year while the poor average 37,429, a ratio of 66.9 to 1.

Retail stores have reported mile-long lines after the ban on video games was lifted, the government has ordered a moratorium on referenda, grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, and orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Candlewhisper Archive's national animal is the Six-Fingered Ugly Dolphin-Octopus Thing, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Unlimited Cheap Data.

Candlewhisper Archive is ranked 14,066th in the world and 8th in Forest for Most Pro-Market, scoring 87.44 on the Rand Index.
